The Sparkfly Swamp is a unique location under asura control. It’s located on the south-west coast of the Southern Shiverpeaks, and the only way to get here is through an asura gate in the Shards of Orr caves.

The Stone Summit saw an opportunity to reach a lich and harness its power after the recent earthquakes opened the way to its crypt. Malory and I headed into the Vloxen Excavations to put an end to the Stone Summit’s plans and free the dredge.
